He’s the Taco to my Fish (ew gross)

He’s the Taco to my Fish (ew gross)

Fair warning: there’s gonna be a lot of bragging rights in this post. Also: I realize I do a lot of bragging as it is but you know what, live with it. So we’ve established that I am not outdoorsy. I do not sleep in tents. I don’t crouch in dirt to pee unless I’m(…)

Steelhead with Roasted Beets

I’m feeling guilty again. It might be the fact that a Big Mac fell in my mouth around 2am last night. Or that I ate the french onion dip I was supposed to be saving for that party I’m throwing, in my car on my way home from the store. Or that I went to(…)

Hawaii-Style Chicken and Rice

So it’s snowing here. I’m fed up with winter. I’ve had it with my high-heeled open toed sandals peeking at me from the depths of my closet. My sweaters have been in a relentless rotation. My hands are constantly cold and I seem to have had the sniffles for months now, which means a chapped(…)

Manicotti, Muther-effers!

So we’ve all got that one thing we can cook like a champ, whether you need to impress the boss or the mother-in-law or your probation officer, or you’ve just planned an impromptu dinner party and need something reliable in a flash. The recipe we can school pretty much blindfolded, our signature dish, our piece(…)

This Is What Happens When I Try to Make Lettuce Wraps

This Is What Happens When I Try to Make Lettuce Wraps

I dunno, guys.  I try.  I really do.  I so badly want to be one of those people who “eats clean”, who can lay off the carbs for one goddamn moment just to give my digestive tract a break and feel all grand and springy in my step.  But I just can’t.  And you know(…)
